Philips DirectLife

Every Movement Counts

About

Philips DirectLife is a new customized, interactive fitness program that offers a fun and simple solution to people eager to adopt a more active lifestyle. The DirectLife program was born out of a desire to directly appeal to the more than 60 percent of the global population who fail to reach the minimum levels of moderate daily physical activity to deliver health benefits, as recommended by the World Health Organization.

DirectLife records a person's daily movements via a discreet, wearable state-of-the-art Activity Monitor which tracks both the duration and intensity of a user's daily activity. Information is then easily transferred in one simple step via USB to a personal web page that keeps track of progress against both daily targets and longer term goals.

The program offers a number of unique features, including a personal coach to help people set balanced and achievable goals, provide individual feedback and deliver advice on how to make easy healthy lifestyle changes, some in as little as a few minutes a day.

SW Architect / Product Owner

The engineers at Railsware worked on several of our Ruby on Rails web applications. These guys are up-to-date on the latest technology, they know what they are doing, and want to deliver quality code.

We were somewhat skeptical at first because of the distance between The Netherlands and Ukraine. However, in this case, contracting worked out pretty well and they were really part of the team.

Involvement

Railsware engineers have joined Philips Personal Health Solutions team to handle migration from Rails 1 to Rails 3. Our team has also ported Java applications to Ruby and implemented rich API's for the client software including Windows, iOS and MacOS X.

One of the project specifics has been interaction with hardware devices which added some extra expertise to our engineers and a desire to keep progressing in this direction.
